Amy was found dead in her flat with head and throat injuries on the night of Monday 14th January. Martin Saberi, 53, has been charged with her murder.
Connor Turner, one of Amy's friends, said the 51-year-old was a 'hero' in the local LGBT community.
He added: "She didn't have a selfish bone in her body. She helped me through some difficult times when I was younger.
"I knew her from when I was 15-years-old. I ended up on the streets for a bit. She found me outside a local shopping market and offered to cook me tea.
"Our friendship blossomed, she taught me how to love myself and care for myself. At the time I was coming out as bisexual.
"I was absolutely devastated when I heard about her death. I'm heartbroken."
